“2T are Rat Bikes”

The Good: Handles like a scalpel.

Cheap PC Works pipe and shorty will restore explosive 05/06 powerband(at a small over-rev cost) that 07 re-porting tamed.

Cheap to buy, cheap to fix.

Developing Popeye forearms to hold on when it hooks up.

The Bad: If you've only ridden 4Ts, expect a learning curve. This isn't some 4T tractor with lbs of gyroscopic rotating mass right under your balls resisting leaning.

If you've only ridden 4Ts, you will overshoot some corners and stall the engine while you learn how to use brakes with no engine braking to help.

Sprained cheek muscles from all the grinning.

Overall Review: 2Ts are the "rat rods" of moto. Yeah, 4Ts with their 200CC cheater advantage are a bit faster**. We don't care.

If you're bored riding essentially the exact same bike as everybody else, just in a different color, on the same lines, sounding exactly the same, get a 2T. It'll be a challenge to learn and master, you can take different lines and they'll hear you coming.

And they're cheap. Did I bring up that they're cheap?

** Point not valid when talking about 2012 KTM 250SX with PC Works pipe and Shorty. Especially with a KTM 300SX kit. 60+HP.

Don't buy into the four stroke Hoopla, buy one of these. You will not be disappointed. May not be able to run down a 450 on a national track by the top in the sport. But still a fun bike you won't be able to ride without a smile on your face.

Miscellaneous The '07 Suzuki RM250 was awesome, dominating magazine shootouts and racetracks around the nation with unmatched performance and laser sharp handling.

Of course, when our engineers get on a roll, there's no stopping them. They've refined the suspension for class leading balance with emphasis on both cornering and straight line performance. Plus, Renthal tapered aluminum handlebars come as standard equipment!

The best thing about this year's RM250, though, is what stays the same. It still offers a better combination of power and handling than any competitor on the track. And that's a winning combination you can use to take home the gold!
